A Tribute to an Extraordinary Woman

On this special day that celebrates both mothers and nurses, I want to honor an exceptional woman who embodies the spirit of selflessness, dedication, and love. She was born as the second child in a family of twelve siblings in South Mogirango, Kisii, Kenya. Her journey would lead her to become the first nurse in her community, touching countless lives along the way.

A Mother’s Love and Sacrifice Despite the challenges of being part of a large family, she managed to raise six children of her own. But her love extended far beyond her immediate family. She supported her siblings, nieces, and nephews selflessly, always putting their needs before her own. Her heart knew no bounds, and she worked tirelessly to ensure their well-being.

The 24-Hour Nurse Her dedication to her nursing profession was unwavering. She was always on call, ready to assist in emergencies, whether it was helping someone give birth or responding to accidents. Her compassion knew no limits, and she went without questioning, without expecting financial gain, even in a region where resources were scarce.

A Trailblazer for Girlchild Projects With limited resources, she achieved remarkable success. She implemented projects that empowered girls, breaking down barriers and creating opportunities. Her impact resonated far beyond her immediate surroundings, inspiring an entire generation in South Mogirango, Kisii.

The Voice for the Voiceless Her legacy extends beyond her professional achievements. She instilled in me the importance of hard work, compassion, and advocacy. She taught me to be the voice for the voiceless, to stand up for those in need, and to be an agent of transformation and change.

To My Remarkable Mother Today, as we celebrate both mothers and nurses, I look up to you with immense pride and humility. You are a beacon of strength, resilience, and love. Your sacrifices have shaped my life, and your unwavering commitment gives me the strength to persevere even when hope seems distant.

So, to my extraordinary mother, if I don’t say it often enough: I love you. Thank you for being my guiding light. Happy Mother’s Day and Nurses Day❤️
